Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Sourcing and Contracting work center
  2. Go to the Contracts view and select the relevant Contract which is already released
  3. Now do the changes to Validity Period, Quantity and Price
  4. You want system to trigger approval process for the new changes


Currently we do not have reapproval functionality for purchasing contracts. System will trigger notification to the employee responsible but not the approval task.


Purchasing contracts does not support the reapproval process and hence this can be taken as a new requirement. Hence we request you to post in influence forum -
